Newcastle 6 Tottenham 1: Spurs suffer humiliating first-half capitulation as Toon take giant step towards top four place


TOTTENHAM sunk to a new low as they were blitzed by top four rivals Newcastle in a nightmare opening 21 minutes.

And now Eddie Howe’s side are dreaming of a return to Europe’s top table after thrashing hapless Spurs in front of a rocking St. James’ Park.

Billed as a battle for the Champions League, Newcastle would have been given a tougher game by local ninth-tier side Heaton Stannington. 

Even for shambolic Spurs’ standards, this was a horrifying new low.

Given how high they are housed in the Leazes End, it would have been 5-0 by the time those on the slow side made it to the bottom. 

Howe’s Mags were exceptional as they took a giant leap towards securing a top-four finish, but they weren’t 5-0 up inside 21 minutes brilliant. 

For that to happen you need a willing partner to roll over, and Tottenham were more than happy to oblige. 

Starting with a four-man defence for the first time in 15 months, nobody had a clue what they were doing.
